As a large company, you have unique needs when it comes to communication and collaboration. After using 8x8 for a period of time, I can confidently say that it is a reliable and feature-rich solution that is well-suited for large organizations. The setup process was straightforward, and the interface was easy to use, even for those who may not be tech-savvy. The wide range of features, such as virtual meetings, call forwarding, and voicemail transcription, have helped us streamline our communication and increase productivity. One of the things I appreciate most about 8x8 is the high call quality and reliability. We have not experienced any dropped calls or other technical issues, which is essential for a company of our size. The customer support team has also been very helpful whenever we've had questions or needed assistance. Overall, I would highly recommend 8x8 to any large organization looking for a comprehensive and reliable communication solution.

We use 8x8 for inbound and outbound calls for Sales and Support, and we use 8x8 to monitor performance and establish analytics with all the tools provided. 8x8 allows managers to view callbacks from callers for training purposes and to better understand what our day-to-day callers are like. We also use 8x8 to properly transfer customers to another agent and it works perfectly. Lastly, we use the desktop app. The desktop app lets us use our personal numbers to reach out to customers and also lets us use video conferencing. This is a huge plus for us as we are able to share our screen and have meetings with multiple guests at once. Lastly we are able to see one another status in the queue, this helps us organize meetings and allows us to go on lunch fluidly.

Used in our public-facing helpline and customer service/donation processing centers. VCC helped us seamlessly pivot to a hybrid environment for all of our call agents without missing a beat. Thanks to the ease of management, we can have 200+ agents working anywhere and anytime.

Ours was a decentralized contact center back in 2013. In mid-2013 we thought to have a centralized helpdesk to support our clients 24/7 and for that, we needed a tool to receive calls, emails, and chat. We explored a few applications available in the market at that point in time. Among those, we were locked on 8x8 Contact Center for its features such as login from anywhere, interactive dashboards, and non-dependable extracting of customized reports. It is user-friendly and does not require a lot of training for agents to use it. Also, it is very simple to manage for configuration managers. We have recommended 8x8 Contact Center to a few other accounts within the organization and quite a few accounts opted for using the same technology to run their business.

8x8 is a great solution for businesses needing multiple lines for clients, who run call center metrics, and manage a call center. The reporting tools and set up are extremely user friendly and allow for great customization. We depend on 8x8 for managing our client lines, running weekly, monthly, and annual reports. The customer service team there is highly reachable and able to troubleshoot anything needed. We really enjoy using 8x8 for our call center and they are critical to our success and the work that we do for our clients.

Our agency uses 8x8 for our call center. The product is useful. The features like adding notifications and chat services helps our team communicate on a daily basis. The dashboards are great features so we can see the number of calls waiting in queue, statuses on our team, and our answer rates to help with productivity.

Our entire organization migrated from an on premise VoIP system to 8x8 Contact Center to solve many hurdles we faced, including the recent pandemic and how that changed the needs of the organization due to working from home. This solved our need for a more modern, cloud-based solution, and provided remote administration capabilities as well as multi-platform solutions for our users.

I use the 8x8 Contact Center system to handle incoming calls and outgoing calls from various types of callers ranging from regular customers to attorney's, other insurance providers, and medical professionals. Sometimes I use the system to connect callers to specific individuals as needed. The chat function is also used daily to seek and provide information regarding various claim details. In general I have not encountered many problems with the system the only issue that comes to mind is when a caller disconnects a call before I can answer it counts as a missed call in the log records which gives the impression that a choice was not made to simply not answer the call. Perhaps an update of some sort could be made to differentiate between a caller disconnecting the call before it is answered and a unanswered call all together. Other than that I have no issues with the 8x8 system.

I use the 8x8 contact center to access agents and remove or add the queues, so that they may be able to step away from their desks for either lunch or use of the facilities. We are able to listen in on the agent's calls for training purposes as well. The main issue my system has is, that it constantly logs me out and all though it takes a moment to log back in, sometimes when a moment is all I have before the agent receives another call when trying to remove the queues.

I take customer service calls and 8x8 helps by managing the type of calls that are coming in. It helps in understanding how to manage the different calls. The system can also assist in assessing where the most traffic is, therefore, providing a good forecast of queue lines. The 8x8 chat option is also a very helpful tool for communicating.

I am always using the 8x8 program since it's the program company-wide, program assists with call handling flow and permits us to go back and check for previous work. also, 8x8 works perfectly with time between calls and time enough to answer each call. 8x8 also has an exact call measurement and calls in the hold.
